First I would narrow down the bug a little bit more before reporting it like
this. For example

1) uninstall gdm and use startx to start gnome and see if the problem
2) Try a more basic/appropriate video driver and see if you experience the
same problem.
3) Instead of gnome, what happens if you use a different desktop
4) Are there any errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log when X is started via startx
method etc.,
